Uphill task for Chelsea, admits coach

Roberto di Matteo admits Chelsea face an uphill task just to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.

The holders were beaten by Shakhtar Donetsk last night, and if Juventus win their next two home games then Chelsea will go into the final match relying on results elsewhere to qualify.

"We absolutely need to win our remaining home games," Di Matteo said. "The consolation was tonight's draw in Copenhagen and it just shows what a difficult competition this is but, certainly, we have to win our game against Shakhtar [on 7 November]."
